Abstract:

The report presents a conceptual design for a computer graphics program capable of displaying arbitrary data bases. The program was motivated by a need to provide new dimensions in information presentation to researchers studying the dynamics of climate. There is a specific need for the application of advanced graphical display techniques to climatological studies. The main purpose of the report, however, is to serve as a guideline in implementing the program on a PDP-10 computer. Thus the report is primarily directed to the implementer, who is assumed to be familiar with the PDP-10 TENEX operating system and with the BLISS language.
